Responses of Study Abroad Students in Australia to Experience-Based Pedagogy in Sport Studies
Light, Richard; Georgakis, Steve
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v2 n1 Article 13 Jan 2008
This paper contributes to research on the scholarship of teaching in the physical education/sport studies fields by examining the responses of study abroad students from overseas studying in Australia to a unit of study in sport studies that placed the interpretation of experience as the centre of the learning process. It draws on research conducted at an Australian university over an 18-month period and involving 170 participants. The study focused on the ways in which student motivations, inclinations, expectations and prior experience interacted with experiences of living in Australia and the experience-based nature of the unit of study shaped their responses and perceptions of learning.
